Crackerbox

Surprise! No electronic music on this Netlabel! Apparently created in 1779, Crackerbox is a loosely connected group of basement-recording geeks and audio-plundering losers. With members as widespread as California, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and a headquarters in Arkansas, they truly are all around us. Their numbers have reached the millions at times, but presently they are hard to gauge. The bands release their own albums and often collaborate or members go solo, creating a plethora of side projects that Jim Santo has a problem keeping straight. Slowly, we will be adding albums as we get permission to put them online. Oh, didn't you know Crackerbox.net is a website, too?

From June 2002 to June 2003, Crackerbox.net hosted a series of weekly deathmatches pitting songs by basement recording artists up against each other. Fans voted for their favorite each week. Waiting for the winner was a gold medal, presidential phone calls, generous gifts from our sponsors, and all the other spoils that come with a blood-soaked victory. But pity the poor loser, who became destined to face a lifetime of eternal shame. This compilation features the big winners, underdogs and fan...

Recorded over the course of a week at a house in West Grove, Pennsylvania, The Pennock Bridge Collective's debut album was recorded by a ten-member supergroup. The PBC is made up of the seven members of The Spinto Band, plus Spencer Owen, Ryan Hennessy (aka Vinyl Boy) and Mike Remiker of The Fisticuffs UK. The album stirs all of its members' influences in one big pot. There's Bachrach-inspired pop, Fresh Prince style hip-hop, romantic ballads, classic new wave, and ambient, I don't know,...

The Christmas Album covers 1997 to January 2001 and some pretty extreme audio plundering. The oldest song is "Gossta Heat em Up" from 1997, when I was 15, made with a Walkman and a boombox. The longest song is "Urine Pop" at 20 minutes, made on a computer. "Episode 1" was my first song made on a computer. "Episode 3" took the longest to make, probably six months. The shortest song is "900 foot nemo" at 1:05, made on computer with help from...

Father Bingo is the solo musical project of Philadelphian graphic artist Mike Lebovitz. "Hygienic Productions," his debut, tells the story of 1940s exploitation film promoter Kroger Babb and his decline. Not all of Mike's songs are depressing or about obscure people from film history. Mike can also be seen kicking your ass with the Philly punk band Stereo Atomico.
